My tomatoe plants are infested with Stink bugs. 
 Do you think seven dust will kill them?

I had to do that Monday, seemed to work so far.  I used the powder, seemed to work a little better than the liquid did.

I like the liquid seven better than the dust.  I workes better for me and I don't like fighting the wind when you use the dust.  Roy

I'm hooked on the Liquid Sevin also, a lot easier then trying to dust with all the wind we've be having.

I mixed up a batch of liquid 7 and looks to have knocked out the stink bugs now my maters will have a chance.

I've sprayed several times, but am unsuccessful.  I do lie near sugar cane fields and am wondering if that's their location.  I'm about to wack all the tomatoes down as they are looking pretty pitiful at this point. The good news is the Watermelons and cantaloupes look and taste great.

I'm having a good year with Cantaloupe too.  Had a few that split after the last rain but they're still good.  Picked one 6 lbs. 10 oz.

If you are looking for something organic, try Pyrethrim. It will kill stink bugs on contact not sure how long it last if you spray your plants. Whenever you see one just pull out your spray and the stink bug will be history. The only thing I found organic that seem to work.

Thanks Mike.  I also have leaf footed bugs all over.  I just cut over half of my tomato plants down today as I'm tired of fighting them.  Hopefully they'll grow back and flower again.  Thanks
